One of the more significant sport routes of its day. Start steeply then make a demanding traverse left via a mono to the bottom of a groove and a slight rest. Climb the still-tricky groove.
FA. Simon Nadin 1987. Remained unrepeated for several years.

you can now clip the second bolt on the direct up from gonads and not bother with the second bolt on gonads then clip the 3rd with a bit of fear for the pendulum. good route high in the grade nice monomove.

Good climbing but low in the grade,(really!!)compare with other Chee 8a pluses.Buster though must be desperate.

What a great route! Nice burly start,a couple of easy moves to relax before that oh so slopey crimp, then a massive reach for a ring finger mono. Don't fall off now. Not bad for 1987.
